More on Ex-WWE Wrestler Lance Cade, Dead at 29

From wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer: “He was released in October 2008 after an incident on an airplane where he had a seizure, believed to have been due to use of either pain killers or muscle relaxers, and had to be taken off the plane…. A storyline idea involving his return was proposed in September and he was signed again.  While he was at home waiting to start on the main roster, a WWE official spoke with him in a phone call in January and was concerned about his lack of coherence in the conversation.  At that time, he asked WWE officials to send him to rehab and completed a 30-day rehab program in February.  After completing the program, the storyline idea ended up being nixed and he was released in April.”

World Wrestling Entertainment’s statement on Cade’s death: World Wrestling Entertainment was informed Friday morning by Lance McNaught’s father that he has passed away of apparent heart failure. WWE extends its deepest condolences to the McNaught family. Mr. McNaught was under contract beginning March 2003, performing under the name “Lance Cade,” and was released October 2008. He returned to FCW, WWE’s developmental territory, in September 2009, and was released in April 2010.”
